TGIZineday! L.A. Zinefest 2014 Comics Primer!

L.A. Zinefest is this Sunday, February 16th at Helms Bakery in Culver City.

This is the 3rd  annual L.A. Zinefest, and it seems to be getting bigger and better each year! It’s a great event to come to if you’re a fan of zines, and/or independent comics art.  In the previous two incarnations I discovered comix zines by Heather Benjamin(my friend pointed her work out to me…), and James the Stanton of Gnartoons.  You never know what new, great art you might stumble onto at this event, or which well known cartoonist might be hanging out, so if you’re anywhere near L.A. this Sunday, you should make the trip!
